"Thank you so much for your wise, kind, and firm teaching. I want you to know that your embodiment of צדק [justice] has truly changed my life."
Ecology and economy, spirituality and social justice are directly connected in our Jewish values of heshbon (accountability). We face issues of heshbon every time we open our wallets, no less than when we search our souls.
WAYS OF PEACE offers time-tested Jewish resources and support for bringing our money into harmony with our highest values — no matter what we earn. Whether you prefer personal consultation or community learning, we can help you discover how to make tzedakah (just giving) a way of life — in ALL political and economic climates.
"I just wanted to write you a note of personal thanks....I was giving, but without much thought about how much I could afford to give....I will continue to reflect on my giving options, and to focus on one or two areas that I feel strongly about, rather than to feel guilty about not being able to give to everyone who asks....I also will commit myself to actually looking at my expenses each month without judgment, just to assess where I am."
